Pats' Brady returns from locker room, plays despite arm injury

Tom Brady hurt his arm Sunday while taking a hit as he threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Randy Moss, but the New England Patriots' quarterback was back in the game for the next series against the Miami Dolphins.

While the Patriots celebrated the touchdown, Brady trotted off the field and kept going, vanishing through the tunnel. Initial reports from the press box indicated that Brady was questionable to return with an arm injury, but he returned to the sideline five minutes later, and following a Miami punt, he was back in the game without missing a play.

Brady hit Moss in stride behind the secondary inside the 15-yard line for the score. But Brady took a hit from his right side from Randy Starks and landed hard on his back.

Brady came into the game with right shoulder and finger injuries.
